Early

Early

am I too early

is this the right time

is this where I am supposed to be

did I wake you

I’m usually early

is this seat taken

I’m not the first to arrive

I’ll walk slower

I’ll get off one stop sooner

walk around the block to kill time

I don’t really want to be here anyway

I’m not as eager as it seems

transit was faster than expected

there were no delays for a change

I’ll come back later

someone has to arrive first

maybe I shouldn’t be the first one they see

I’ll be one of the first to leave

I’ll only stick around awhile

only the late have a place in this room

the ones who struggled to get here

who had trials & tribulations

they arrive breathless agitated apologetic

eager to be there 

all I sacrificed was time
